French Song Companion by Graham Johnson

Book Description

The French Song Companion is the most comprehensive book of French melodie in any language. The great accompagnist Graham Johnson, a noted authority of song, provides repertoire guides to the work of some 150 composers - the majority of them from France, but including British, American, German, Spanish, and Italian musicians who have written French vocal music. There are major articles on such figures as Faure, Duparc, Debussy, Ravel, and Poulenc; substantial articles on Bizet, Chabrier, Gounod, Chausson, Hahn, and Satie; and reassessments of such composers as Massenet, Koechlin, and Leguerney. A host of less celebrated figures who have contributed to the genre take their place in a book which is both informative and entertaining. The biographical articles are supplemented by the song translations of Richard Stokes, some 700 in all, and a veritable treasury of great French poetry from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries. These stand in their own right as indispensable to music lovers, concert-goers, and professional singers and their accompanists. This is a book which not only reflects the repertoire as found in today's concert halls, but also encourages performers and armchair enthusiasts to explore the neglected highways and biways of an endlessly fascinating and highly civilised body of music.

Books By Author Graham Johnson

Young Blood by Graham Johnson Young Blood, Paperback (May 2014)

The Cartel is Britain's biggest drugs gang, a global corporation employing thousands of criminals and flooding Britain with cocaine and heroin. This book reveals how the brutal assassination of drug baron Colin 'King Cocaine' Smith in 2007 by a group of young bucks triggered the rise of the foot soldier.

Cartel by Graham Johnson Cartel, Paperback (June 2013)

The Cartel is Britain's biggest drugs organisation, a shadowy network stretching from the freezing, fog-banks of the Mersey to the glittering marinas of Marbella, from the coffee shops of Amsterdam to the trading floors of Canary Wharf. This title tells about this organisation.

Hack by Graham Johnson Hack, Paperback (March 2013)

From phone taps, to kiss-and-tells, to eventual redemption: the story of a journalist drawn into the depths of the world of tabloid sleaze

Images You Should Not Masturbate to by Graham Johnson Images You Should Not Masturbate to, Paperback (April 2011)

Choking the chicken, spanking the monkey, airing the orchid - whatever you call it, none of the images in this book will encourage the gentle art of self-pleasure. This deceptively simple and strangely addictive book presents a laugh-out-loud collection of random pictures virtually guaranteed to dampen the urge of even the strongest libido.
